What three categories of medical legislation exist?

The numerous types of medical legislation can be categorized in many ways, but one straightforward division into three groups is as follows:

Medical malpractice law deals with situations where a healthcare professional—such as a doctor, nurse, or hospital—has been careless in treating a patient, leading to harm or injury.

Medical Negligence & Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Healthcare regulation: This area of medical law is responsible for overseeing and regulating how the healthcare system as a whole operates.

Public health law: This area of medical law addresses concerns pertaining to the general public’s health and well-being, including disease control and prevention, access to healthcare, and the regulation of health-related goods and services.

Medical Negligence Case Katie Roth

In 2006, Katie Roth was given a diagnosis of a benign brain tumor; nevertheless, her physicians were unable to notice the progression of the tumor and did not treat it in an appropriate manner. She sustained irreversible damage to her brain, which ultimately led to her passing. Her family has filed a lawsuit saying that her doctors committed medical malpractice by failing to monitor and treat her health in the appropriate manner. 

According to the allegations made in the case, her physicians neglected to order appropriate tests, failed to take the findings of those tests into consideration, and failed to correctly interpret her symptoms. The action ultimately resulted in a settlement of twenty million dollars, which was given to her family as compensation for the loss they had suffered.
